The beauty and amenities of Catholic University’s law school building have landed it a spot on “Best Law Buildings,” a list compiled by Prelaw magazine that will be released in its fall issue, due out in October.
Fifty-five law school buildings were lauded for all that they offer students. The magazine assessed aesthetics, square footage per student on campus, library hours, number of library seats per student on campus, and amenities — dining, fitness, parking and lockers. It also included student comments from Princeton Review’s law school guidebook in its evaluation.
The magazine will rank the top 20 law schools and grade all of the 55 schools from B+ to A+ in its fall issue, when the complete methodology will be released.
The Columbus School of Law is one of only two D.C. area law schools to make the list. The building opened in 1994 to rave reviews over its soaring internal atrium and state of the art classrooms. The law school community will officially celebrate the 20th anniversary of the law school’s building on Oct. 1st.
“Law schools have made tremendous strides in this regard since we launched preLaw magazine 18 years ago,” said Jack Crittenden, editor in chief and founder of National Jurist and preLaw magazines. “At that time a majority of law school facilities were in deplorable shape. Now more than one-fourth are excellent, and deserving of honors.”
